Memorial Day Prayer

As we give thanks to ALL those who serve, as we take a moment of silence, I wish to thank my family and my wife's family memebers who serve and still serve this great nation. May we know true peace and may we make those who serve proud by love all that this life has to provide for us.

Dear Heavenly Father,
 As we remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for the freedoms we enjoy every day, we think of how they have followed in the footsteps of your son, our Savior, Jesus Christ. Please hold our servicemen and women in your strong arms. Cover them with your sheltering grace and your presence as they stand in the gap for our protection.  We also remember the families of our troops. We ask for your unique blessings to fill their homes, and we pray your peace, provision, and strength will fill their lives.May the members of our armed forces be supplied with courage to face each day and may they trust in the Lord's mighty power to accomplish each task. Let our military brothers and sisters feel our love and support.
In the name of Jesus. Amen.
